Hikers capture footage of 'Bigfoot' in Canada

A new video has emerged that shows what appears to be a humanoid creature in a remote region.

Ever since the infamous Patterson Bigfoot footage was revealed to the world, videos showing tall hairy hominids have been appearing on a regular basis. The vast majority of these can be immediately written off as hoaxes, but there are still some that intrigue. This latest video has been gaining in popularity since appearing online and is believed to have been filmed in a remote part of British Columbia.

The footage is taken at some distance and shows what looks like an ape-like figure moving slowly between the trees. Given how difficult it is to make out any details of the creature however and with a distinct lack of information about the origins of the video the general consensus at the moment is that the footage is likely to be a hoax.

"It has been the stuff of legends for as long as hikers have been traipsing through the wilderness."

I believe you are referring to a study done by someone that created their own journal to publish the results. An independent lab has also checked the DNA samples and discovered that the DNA in question belongs to an opossum. The original paper worked with badly decomposed material and decided that it was not identifiable and thus must be a human and whatever hybrid. At best it seems that BF is due to humans interbreeding with that lovely marsupial called the opossum.

This is a good read. Stereologist, Melba Ketchum is not the only one to have claimed to have BF hair samples tested. Hair testing is hardly reliable - or atleast not *as* reliable is voice-print matching. that evidence is unmistakable, IMO. But whatever is fair.

To repost as links: Those are both interesting and I look forward to seeing any further articles. Physical hair analysis is very suspect by many however, so their claim of 95% sure Bigfoot is real is also very suspect. I look forward to seeing the results of DNA testing.

My thoughts are that the video shows someone wearing a daypack. I do not think this is a logged area. I would venture to guess that this is an area affected by pine beetles. The trees are dead and upright. There are branches on the trees. This is on a hill along a lake. If the photographer thought it was a bigfoot they probably did so because they were surprised that there are people that actually leave the trail and make their way across the countryside without being hemmed in by lines.

The article states that others are looking. Ketchum claims that her work proves the existence of BF. She claimed that the DNA comes from an unknown hominid. I doubt these other researchers will make the mistake of overlooking opossums as a possible contributor.

I thought the whole "possum" DNA thing was related to that Bigfoot in a Freezer incident, where the DNA of the possum guts and from humans handling all the stuff made the results seem really weird. I don't think any of Ketchum's 3rd party DNA samples came back possum. They came back unknown, or unidentified.

Ketchum labeled unknown some DNA that was identified as opossum by another lab. Here is the link dated July 2, 2013:

Her work has lots of issues... "They used some of the latest cutting edge science....those are real technologies and potentially real data.... They don't show any of the raw data. They just sort of tell their results. Their conclusions do not logically follow from the data. Their conclusions are invalid...I couldn't follow three quarters of that paper."
